This Is What Happens When I Avoid Doing Work

This Is What Happens When I Avoid Doing Work

I wake up early on the weekends. I can’t help it. It just carries over from the work week. So I make coffee, check the news, read Twitter and make a plan for the day – I have a bunch of artwork to do, I want to clean up the apartment a bit, go food shopping, make a nice dinner, and so on. At this point my wife is probably still asleep, because It’s only 7 am or so. And I don̵... »

Happy Belated Birthday To Us!

Happy Belated Birthday To Us!

This past Saturday was our 3rd birthday. And you may be wondering, “Why didn’t they do a post celebrating this momentous occasion?” Thing is, we were going to… I mean, we had planned on getting together for drinks and then we were going to brainstorm on putting together a post to celebrate entering our third year as Skepchick’s scrappy little sister.

Filthy Lucre – Why We Love Molly Crabapple

Filthy Lucre – Why We Love Molly Crabapple

The first time time I saw the artwork of Molly Crabapple was in 2008 at Ad Hoc Gallery in Brooklyn. Her artwork must have made an impression on me because all I can remember from that show is marveling at the detail in an allegorical circus scene of hers. I also wanted to cut new mats for her drawings because they were a little dinged up and I thought they deserved some classy, 8-ply goodness (I w... »

Just An Angry Rant About The Whole Shia LeBeouf Art Theft Thing

Just An Angry Rant About The Whole Shia LeBeouf Art Theft Thing

I’m tempted to just repost CHUD.com’s breakdown of the whole Shia LaBeouf art-theft deal, without any credit, as a hilarious meta-commentary. But even as a joke, that makes me queasy. Also, I typed the hyphenate “meta-commentary” and I feel like I should be set on fire for it. So let’s leave that and go back to 6 o’clock Tuesday morning. I had just gotten up and... »
